Here's to all of you, my dear blogging friends. May your step over the threshold from 2009 to 2010 be one marked with connection, joy, perhaps some quiet reflection, and anticipation of a healthy and happy year for yourself and all those you hold dear.
Since we cannot celebrate the arrival of 2010 together, I have tried to create a little virtual New Year's Eve 'party' for us right here. So raise your glass of sparkling water, wine or champagne - enjoy the fireworks - and beware, I am about to embrace you in a big bear hug! There. [[[ !! ]]]. Did you feel it? A friendly hug full of respect and appreciation for all you have contributed to my life in 2009.
